2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
This enticing Sauvignon Blanc offers aromas of white peach, cantaloupe, and orange blossom complemented by bright citrus notes of lemon curd and zest. Tropical flavors of kiwi, pineapple, lemon, mango and papaya introduce a rich palate and a persistent mineral finish. A great aperitif, this pairs nicely with just about any seafood dish, and is a great companion with hard cheeses.
The long cool growing season of 2013 allowed great acid retention in the fruit and extended time for flavor development without the higher sugar levels. The warm weather in August was timed perfectly to bring the fruit to the needed ripeness levels.
This year we sourced some the best fruit from three unique vineyard sites in the Russian RiverValley, the Sonoma Valley and on the Sonoma Coast. Each possessing unique varietal character. Together they showcase how good a "Sonoma County" Sauvignon Blanc can be.
Grapes were picked in the early morning hours, and went immediately to press and chilled to preserve freshness. The grape juice was immediately inoculated with yeast and nutrients to finish the primary fermentation in tank and hand selected neutral French Oak barrels at carefully controlled temperatures.
